Manual hoists are the most economical way to lift a load and are often found in maintenance tool boxes. They are used in most industries including manufacturing, agriculture, construction, mining, oil, and public utilities. Manual hoists come in two general styles: Hand Chain Hoists and Lever Hoists. Hand chain hoists use the power of the worker for operation and are primarily used for vertical lifting.

  • Hand chain hoists are an economical way to lift even the heaviest of loads.
  • Equipped with two chains:
    • The hand chain is a continuous chain that is looped around a wheel located on the hoist. This wheel is designed with recessed pockets that engage the chain and allow the pulling of the chain to drive the gearbox of the hoist.
    • The lifting chain moves up or down when the hand chain is pulled in one direction or the other and can be reeved with several stands of chain (falls) depending on the capacity of the hoist.
  • Common uses of hand chain hoists include construction, maintenance, and precision lifting applications.

Lever chain hoists are used for pulling, lifting and positioning. Manual chain hoists may also be purchased with integral trolleys and in styles that are ideal for low headroom applications.

  • Lever pullers are used to both lift and pull items during the rigging process.
    • These manual chain hoists are designed to move loads either vertically or horizontally.
    • Lever pullers can be used inverted or for any angle pull.
    • Because of their compact design, these hoists can be used in tight quarters.
    • Lever chain hoists are usually designed to free wheel for fast/easy movement of the unloaded lifting chain, and they have 360 degree rotation of both the lever and the top swivel hook, allowing for easy rigging.
